Registration on EU Transparency Register
Goals / Remit
The Irish Congress Trade Unions is the representative body for all workers and their trade unions in Ireland. It operates in two Member States, Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Congress seeks to improve the pay and workplace conditions of working people, freedom of association, the right to organise and collective bargaining;
Congress seeks to achieve a just society - one which recognises the rights of all workers and citizens to enjoy the prosperity and fulfilment which leads to a good quality of life. Quality of life embraces not just material well-being, but freedom of choice to engage in the arts, culture and all aspects of civic life. This vision applies in the context of Ireland, Europe and the wider world and challenges the existing economic order.
Congress will strive to achieve economic development, social cohesion and justice by upholding the values of solidarity, fairness and equality.
The primary instrument for the achievement of this mission will be the organisation of workers in unions. Congress will also construct and advocate for a platform of policies capable of delivering our vision of a just society. We will engage with Government, employers, civil society organisations, voluntary groups and international bodies to promote its attainment. We will support unions in their efforts to secure a fairer distribution of the wealth their members create.
Congress operates within all EU guidelines, and reflects EU policy and legislation in all of it's undertakings.
